In terms of how hard it is to tank, what's the order of easiest to hardest? (I know there's a lot of other things too)

In sanctum you need to be able to tank 8x lvl 4 mission equivalent battle ships rats plus what ever adds they have and that's about it, sometimes there might be more then eight but life is.
Some rats have ecm or use missiles which makes incoming damage significantly higher if you have a BS or can't reduce damage with velocity.

You can do the Hubs/Dens in standard shield buffered Canes or Pests without much trouble with enough DPS(Den -> Hub -> Sanctum). Never done a sanctum so far since I'm mostly in low sec.

The wiki is your friend.

Sanctums are pretty easy to tank in a T3 with AB and about 200-300 DPS local tank.

You can tank a sanctum in a drake. 8x level 4? Yeah right....

Have reading comprehension troubles ?
It's 8x BS shooting you at same time, not 8x lvl 4 missions.

So anything that can tank a few screwed up spawns from a lvl 4 blockade can do a sanctums; this includes a drake and myrm and any other ship if you can squeeze enough tank & dps in it.

Depending on what NPC's you fight, even that can be overkill.

I found out that you can solo Sansha Sanctums with no local tank required whatsoever Cool

These numbers are approximate, but they give you a general idea. Tank can be reduced via sig / speed tanking. I have gotten these approximate numbers from Serpentis Havens / Sanctums.

Battleship size sig radius, The easy Sanctum (Ring Sanctum) requires about 600 dps tank. The hard Sanctum (Station Sanctum), requires about a 1100+ dps tank, it is possible for that to not be enough because the trigger's are non-linear.

With a battlecruiser size sig, Havens and below can be tanked with a 300-400 dps tank. Like sanctums, there is two variations, one is easier and one is harder. Pirate gate / Asteriod is the easy haven, and the cloud is the hard haven.

I dont really know if you need THAT much tank. I was running sanctums in a dual rep domi with 3x hardener, and the easier sanctums I only had to pulse the second repper if i screwed up triggers, and the harder sanctums I had to run it about half the time. According to eft thats ~350 with one repand 700 with two.

I have been running hubs in a drake which only has ~230dps tank, and the only time I get below half shields is if I screw up triggers.

Sanctum (hardest)
Heaven
Hub
Den (easiest)
There is others anomalies, but you shouldn't waste your time in anything lower than HUBs.

Sanctums have neut cruisers ans BSs. That's the only real concern. All you have to do is warp at 50/70km and kill the neut ratts before they dry your cap out. Usually you can wipe them out before they get range to neut you (leave 1 or 2 if they are the triggrers). No big deal.

I can easilly solo Sanctums in a Dominix:

Highslots:
- 1 Drone Link
- Art Cannon of your choice/skills
- 1 med remot armor rep to fix drones if needed
Midslots:
- 1 Omini Tracking Link
- 4 Cap recharge II
Lowslots:
- 1 Large Armor rep
- 4 hardeners (rat spec)
- 2 Cap Power Relay
Rigs:
- Sentry Damage Augmentor
- aux nano pump
- cap control circuit
Drones:
- 5 Garde II
- 5 Curator II
- 5 Mammer II
- 5 Hobg II

Cap stable at 70% (can run rep and 2-3 neutz on your face at the same time, stable), and can tank every spawn from Sanctum.
